The BCA Basketball 2011-2012 Season Kicks Off!

The BCA Boy's basketball team season opened at AISB in Baneasa on Dec. 7.  The emotions and excitement of their first game in a "real" gym were running high.  They played with only 7 players, and were tired near the end.  The final score doesn't reflect all the work they spent practicing, but they enjoyed playing a "real game."

  Final score: AISB-  65  BCA-  27!

"In our next game, against ISB, things were a little bit different. We knew something was odd when we were told by the ISB guard to go to the "balloon" behind the school for the game. Then, once we were inside the balloon we looked at the "court" and noticed it was a tennis court with artificial grass! And so we played on the court in the balloon, and won the game 44-29!" - anonymous player.

Here are some highlights of the game:

BCA Construction!

Update on the See BCA Through Campaign.  As of Nov. 4 we have a total of  $15,714 pledged or raised.  Last Friday the 1st/2nd grade class had a plant sale and raised $205 for the campaign.  We thank God for His provision so far!  Please join us in praying for the rest to be raised soon.

It looks like they will be putting up the steel beams for the roof this week!  It is exciting to see the progress of the building.  Join us in praising God for the progress on the building and all the ways He has provided!

See BCA Through!!

The construction continues to move ahead! Each day it is looking more and more like a school!!

Thanks to many generous donations, we have the money in hand to finish the basic shell of our new facility. At the moment, however, we do not have enough to complete the project.
Right now BCA has a strategic opportunity. A weather-tight building would enable us to continue construction as funds become available. Windows will cost approximately $42,000 and doors $16,000. Raising these funds by November 7th will allow time for the windows and doors to be installed before winter hits. The timing of this seems rather daunting, but we are asking the Lord to continue to provide, as He has to this point.

Please pray with us.  If you feel led to give towards this need, you can make a tax-deductible donation—at the school office, here on the website, or by check to Bucharest Christian Academy c/o Melinda Russell, 317 Timber Ridge Drive, Nolanville, TX 76559.

Christ in the Old Testament

This year in the Secondary Chapels we studied Christ in the OT.  Here is a great summary that was found on the web, it is part of a sermon from Tim Keller. 

Here are some responses of students to the chapel theme this year:
  • I learned that Jesus was shown a lot in the Old Testament, which I had not realized before.
  • I never realized how much the Old Testament points to Jesus.
  • I learned that the Bible is true
  • I learned how everything was planned from the beginning, and how Jesus was with the people.
  • How God had a detailed plan to save his people and began to reveal it in the Old Testament.
  • I loved looking at Bible stories I was so used to, with different eyes.
  • Jesus is everywhere!
  • I learned that when Moses struck the rock, the rock represented Jesus.
  • Jesus is the Lion and the Lamb!
  • I learned you reap what you sow!
 We are thankful for all the ways the Lord has worked in the lives of the students this year!
